In 2007, the global diabetes community rallied behind the call to light iconic landmarks and buildings in blue to mark World Diabetes Day. A total of 279 iconic monuments were lit in 2007 as beacons of hope for the millions of people worldwide living with diabetes. Over 1.2 billion people were reached with campaign messages.
In 2008, our aim is to encourage a total of 500 monuments and iconic buildings to light up to mark World Diabetes Day.
